Global Greening for St. Patrick's Day

Every year, hundreds of landmarks and buildings around the world, from Sydney to San Francisco Go Green to celebrate Ireland’s National Day - St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th. This year, our sponsors at Education in Ireland are inviting our partner universities and entrants to take part in the celebration by Going Green on their campus or online.

As a not-for-profit organisation based in Ireland, we have hosted the annual UA Global Summit in Dublin, Ireland since its inception over a decade ago. In particular, we are incredibly proud of the many lifelong connections that our entrants have made here during their visit. At a time when students all over the world are unable to travel, we wish to bring some positivity and hope this St. Patrick's Day by showing the world why Ireland is such a great place to study and visit.

How you can participate

Going Green can involve lights, clothes, hats, virtual backgrounds, paint, hairspray, food, balloons, face paint - the only limitation is your imagination! See the link below for a full list of buildings and landmarks near you that will Go Green on St. Patrick's Day on 17 March 2021.

Once you have your Go Green photo or video, all you have to do is to upload it to Instagram and tag @educationinireland @tourismireland @undergradawards
#globalgreening #awardyourwork. There is no limit to how many times you can enter.

Plus you could win a whole host of prizes on offer from Tourism Ireland from Irish hampers to handcrafted linen.
